Pedagogies of Care
Open Resources for Student-Centered & Adaptive Strategies in the New Higher-Ed Landscape
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
The power of educational development lies in a single thread—one specific message—that runs through our entire enterprise. It is simply this:
You are not alone.
Pedagogies of Care: Open Resources for Student-Centered & Adaptive Strategies in the New Higher-Ed Landscape offers practical and engaging advice about what "next" should look like across higher education, from sixteen current and forthcoming authors in the Teaching and Learning in Higher Education book series from West Virginia University Press.
Collection editors Victoria Mondelli and Thomas J. Tobin note that the resources in Pedagogies of Care take many forms: "Our contributors created videos, audio podcasts, interviews, infographics, and articles. All are underpinned by a student-centered, evidence-based ethos."
We welcome you to use these resources in your own teaching preparations, in educational development with your faculty colleagues, in discussion groups—however they can be useful for you. Our aim is to help facilitate successful teaching and learning in a time of disruption and hardship.
Much about the future is uncertain, so let’s make ready: rally toward radical hope, evolve our practices, and meet new possibilities for growth and well-being.
